Title says it. I’ve noticed that mysticism/Kabbalah seems to be tied to false messiahs in every generation. Why is this?
For instance Sabbatai Zevi, who was self proclaimed. But the latest, the Lubavitcher Rebbe who did not make such proclamations but many of his followers did/still do. And many so called messiahs in between the centuries tied to mystical ideas.
Interested in many perspectives, keeping it civil of course.
